Not Really: Possible without a complete history and physical examination. There is a strong family connection for migraine. Triggers can be anything from bright light, loud sounds, certain foods and smells, lack of sleep can even trigger attacks. Most workups do not require advance imaging such as CT or MRI. See your doctor.

Migrains: Depends on the type and cause of the migraines. Migraines can last for several hours to several days. Migraine sufferers should have a thorough evaluation to determine the type and cause and then proper treatment can be given to help. This type of headache tends to attack females more than males, and can be devastating to a person.

Yes, it is possible: Although recurrent headaches are the mainstay of migraine, a migraine is not just simply a headache. Rather, it should be viewed as an attack that is accompanied by various neurological and non-neurological features as well as headache.
